Stephen Curry, mom team up in NBA's initiative to aid youth basketball parents

NEW YORK -- The NBA is trying to help parents improve their children's basketball-playing experience, and the league recruited Stephen Curry and his mother to help.

The two-time MVP from the Golden State Warriors and his mother, Sonya Curry, will take part Wednesday in a parent workshop and panel discussion for families in Walnut Creek, California, to help launch the league's Jr. NBA Parent Initiative.

The program, which began Monday, aims to educate parents on the needs of young players and will feature parent forums, recommendations and age-appropriate curriculum for those who register on the initiative's website.

Also, a new Jr. NBA Coach App will include demonstration videos with NBA and WNBA players and coaches, and 48 preloaded practice plans for various skill levels.
